After CBC News revealed that two terrorists involved in the attack on a gas plant in Algeria were from London (Ontario), Wael Haddara and Munir el-Kassem told the media that they were unknown to them and that terrorism cannot be linked with religion.
From April 2011 to March 2012, while Wael Haddara was on the board of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) as a director and later as its chair, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) revoked the charitable status of three Islamic organizations linked with MAC because they were involved in the financing of terrorism. WAMY-Canada transferred Saudi funds to MAC in 2002-2003 and lost its status because it funded al-Qaeda in 2001. IRFAN-Canada lost its status after CRA concluded that for the 2005-2009 period alone, it transferred $14.6 million to the terrorist organization Hamas. From 2001 to 2010, MAC transferred $296,514 to IRFAN, Hamas fund collector in Canada.
